Product features
Fruit of the tireless work of the bee, honey is one of the most genuine existing products, since it does not need any treatment, either for its production or preservation. Among the local honey, obtained from the nectar of the flora characterizing our inland, there are: chestnut honey, acacia honey, heather honey, strawberry tree honey, and mixed flower honey.
The quality of honey varies according to the flora used by the bees. The color of acacia honey is light straw yellow, chestnut honey is amber colored, mixed flower honey has a lighter or a darker color according to the presence of honeydew. Also the taste varies: for instance, chestnut honey is more bitter than acacia or mixed flower honey.

  • How to prepare it
    Honey is extracted from the beehive with the smoking-out method. The practice consists of producing smoke near the beehive, so that bees go down to the lower part of the beehive moving their wings and giving the operator the possibility to extract the frames with honey. Once extracted from the beehives, the frames are uncapped with a special tool similar to a knife and placed in an extraction machine working like a centrifuge (honey extraction machine). Honey is then filtered, put to settle, and put into jars. The empty honeycombs provide the wax with which new molds will be built.
